Support FSP's Parenting for Peace Series- Tues October 19th

Hi -- Just a reminder about David Sobel's visit to Portland next Tuesday, as part of the Friends School of Portland's Parenting for Peace project.  If you haven't registered for the workshop and/or for childcare for the free public lecture, please try to do so by Friday so that we can have an accurate head count for supper!

Also, here are a few links that might be of interest for teachers or parents: 

Eco-Reading :  An Annotated Bibliography of books about the environment for children and teens

Promise of Place :  a Center for Place-Based Learning and a resource with many links (under curriculum & planning

Center for EcoLiteracy -- an umbrella organization working on providing resources for schools

A few lists of Maine books for children :   from MaineReads, from Read/React/Reviewbook awards for Maine children's book authors, and Curious City (a blog with all kinds of info about special events that include children's lit). 

Thanks for sharing this as broadly as possible!   Kim
